The REPCONN HQ bot[edit source]
That thing has 4 wheelie legs, no arms (at least not from the shoulders) and two miniguns mounted on top of its shoulders (they seem to have thin arms connecting them), I don't think its the Mister Handy equivalent of a Sentry bot somehow...--184.108.40.206 00:02, October 27, 2010 (UTC) I'm just glad we don't have to fight him...TestECull
Whoever added "HOW DO YOU KILL SENTURY BOTS?" I removed it, your welcome, I saved you from a (possible) ban. CANPoo 23:32, October 27, 2010 (UTC)
Are they smaller on New Vegas or is just me? i remember Fallout 3 ones being almost twice the size :/ .
They are indeed smaller, but not twice as much.
Manufactured by RobCo?[edit source]
Aren't sentry bots manufactured by RobCo Industries? The museum display mentions the name several times in reference to the antique model, but the sentry bot is not listed as one of RobCo's products, nor is it mentioned in this article who made them (aside from the fact that they are "military robots"). Anybody have a clearer picture of this? EganioTalk 02:45, January 26, 2011 (UTC)
- The museum also has a Mr.Handy on display as well as having a Mr.Handy tour guide, yet Mr.Handy is a General Atomics product. So the museum's display is likely to be an exhibit on robots in general rather than a RobCo only affair. Plus there's the fact that the "facts" listed in the other exhibits, especially the ones related to radioactive waste, are clearly corporate propaganda and probably means that most of the exhibits in that museum are very unreliable sources of information.

Why doesnt Mr House use these as guards as well as Securitrons? Tough SOBs if you ask me[edit source]
--Deathclawhugger9458 13:14, July 24, 2011 (UTC)
Because Mr.House didn't create Sentry Bots, he created Securitrons and had the rights to do whatever he wished with them, unlike Sentry Bots that would have infringing rights to things.
Well i dont think a guy from General Atomics or whatever would come and sue him. I still think he should use them --Deathclawhugger9458 09:23, July 25, 2011 (UTC)
But he didn't have a way of readily producing or obtaining Sentry Bots in the wasteland. In addition a little bit of ego would also be involved as using them would almost be like admitting he wasn't smart enough to create robots capable of defending New Vegas on his own, and thus, had to rely on robots made by one of his biggest rivals before the war.220.127.116.11 02:14, August 2, 2011 (UTC)

Not taking damage from pulse grenades[edit source]
Has anyone noticed them not taking any damage from pulse grenades since the last patch? I chucked half a dozen at the ones in Helios One and got nothing for it. They used to die in one explosion. Rooker75 06:17, August 24, 2011 (UTC)
